This won me first prize at a county fair some years ago. It's an easy way to get a green veggie into youngsters. Zucchini alone doesn't really appeal to me, but with this recipe if you don't tell, they won't know!
Greased 2 8x4x2 inch loaf pans (or the equivalent which will hold 4 cups batter).
Combine beaten eggs, oil, sugar, vanilla, and pineapple in a mixing bowl. Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and add the above. Blend well, then stir in the grated zucchini. Stir well and divide between the two greased loaf pans.
Bake at 325 degrees F for 50 minutes. Test with a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, move to wire racks to cool for 5 minutes, then turn out onto the wire rack to cool completely.
Note: These freeze well up to 3 months. I also make and freeze individual slices.

If my recipe for zucchini bread calls for 3 cups of zucchini how much frozen zucchini should I use?
3 cups? Actually depends upon how the zucchini is supposed to be prepared and then measured in the recipe. You can cut or chop the frozen zucchini (thawed?) to approximate the amount stated in the recipe.
